ADPSR Building Ecology Lecture Series hosted engineer Bry Sarte speaking on "Sustainable Infrastructure and Regenerative Water Design" Tuesday, March 15th at AIA San Francisco.
Using his recently published book, Sustainable Infrastructure: The Guide to Green Engineering and Design, as a platform, Sarté discussed regenerative water cycles, systems and buildings that teach, and the water energy-nexus. Looking at case studies from around the world, his talk focused on the latest innovations in sustainable design and where the field is headed in the future.
Bry Sarté is founder of Sherwood Design Engineers and the Sherwood Institute and spoke from his many years of international engineering experience. Projects he addressed included master planning and infrastructure design as well as site planning for individual buildings and urban spaces. Sarté has served as principal engineer for the sustainably-oriented site design of the UC Berkeley School of Law and the 5,000 acre ecological master plan for the Great Wall Villages in Northern China.
